Villa in Lakithra, Kefalonia, Greek Islands - Peaceful Location, 10 Minute Drive To Beaches, Within Short Walking Distance Of Local Shops

EOT: MHTE0458K92000433701

Villa Theos is located in Lakithra meaning beautiful view and the villa is surrounded by olive trees and vines whilst set in an elevated position enjoying stunning views of Argostili Bay and the surrounding mountains.

It is only a ten minute drive from the airport, but shielded from the flight path. The island’s capital Argostili with its numerous shops, bars, restaurants and facilities is also only a 15 minute drive from the villa.

Villa Theos is just a short walk away from the village's tavernas, bars, bakery and shops and Carrefour and Lidl food stores are just a short drive. If you love the sand and sea then you will be no more than a ten minute drive from some of the island's best beaches such as Avithos, Ammes, Minnies and Makris Gialos.

Villa Theos offers a high standard of accommodation. The air-conditioned property comprises a large open pklan kitchen/dining living area with 2 French doors leading on to a covered veranda with rattan loungers and a range of sunbeds and deck chairs arranged around the private pool. In addition the garden features an alfresco dining area with BBQ. The garden area is well stocked and amongst the abundance of flowers there are numerous fruit trees and herbs all of which are available to guests when in season.

The modern kitchen is fully fitted along with a dining area for 6 people. The spacious living room has 2 sofas one of which is a sofa bed. A separate toilet is also available on the ground floor.

Upstairs there are 2 bedrooms; one double and one twin bedded and both with en-suite shower and toilet. Both bedrooms have a veranda with stunning views over the mountains and Bay of Argostoli and are furnished to provide a tranquil alternative whether enjoying breakfast, tea or that early evening glass of wine.

Villa Theos offers plenty to keep you occupied including a selection of books, games and DVDs in addition to a Wii and smart TV should you wish to stream your favourite programmes. Free wifi is provided should you wish to remain connected during your stay.

About James Evans

We are James and Amanda and live in England with our 2 dogs and 2 cats and have 5 adult children. We enjoyed our first holiday together in Kefalonia in 2007 and fell in love with this beautiful island immediately and married here in 2009. We have been very fortunate to aquire a small piece of this lovely island having bought Villa Theos in May 2014. We have made numerous improvements to the property and are very happy with the very positive feedback we've received from our guests. It's our wish that all those who stay at Villa Theos enjoy a very special holiday and leave with lasting and happy memories of this island and their time in Lakithra.

James Evans purchased this villa in 2014

Why James Evans chose Lakithra

Villa Theos is set in the beautiful village of Lakithra. You are only a short drive from everything you need from supermarkets, beaches, the main town of Argostoli. The Villa itself has spectacular views down the valley towards Argostoli beach on the one side and Mount Enos and St Georges Castle on the other.

The Village of Lakithra is home to the local bakery and has its own cake shop. There are four local restaurants to choose from one of which (En Kefalinia) uses organic produce grown on the premises. Georges bar which is only a five minute walk from the villa serves great cocktails.

Argostoli is only a short drive (15 mins) from the villa and has plenty to offer in the way of bars and restaurants. Kefalonia is not a destination for seasoned clubbers, nor will you find high rised hotel complexes on the island. If you want to experience the Greek traditions and culture then Kefalonia will deliver it in spades.

From Villa Theos you can drive to Fiscado in less than 2 hours, but well worth the visit as it is picturesque venetian port and one of the few places on Kefalonia not to have been destroyed in the 1953 earthquake. Beaches, caves, vinyards, castles, roman ruins and monestaries are all within a short drive from Lakithra and wherever you decide to go you'll find the journey there as magnificent as the destination.

There are some great beaches close by but Avithos beach is a particularly long sandy beach which has two great tavernas and a beach bar. Some of the best local wines are served in the upper of the two tavernas.

Our villa manager (Debbie) and our pool cleaner (Keith) are available to help make your stay as comfortable as possible. They have a wealth of local knowledge whether you are looking for something to eat, see or do and many of our guests have been very appreciative.

What makes this villa unique

Villa Theos is a lovely proportioned villa, both bedrooms have en-suites and balcony's from which you can enjoy the spectacular views across the olive groves down to Argostoli.

The villa is only a 10 minute drive from the airport which means you can be enjoying your holiday so much more quickly but being in Lakthra also means you don't get any flight disturbance.

During your stay you'll almost certainly be treated to the sounds of Greece - the local goat heards being moved from field to field and the musicality of the local church bells.

Since buying the property we've added an additional patio area and pergola which provides a lovely alfresco dining area for use throughout the day.

Great villa, great location.

  • 5 of 5

Had a lovely break here. Facilities ideal for a quieter family holiday, with local bar, a couple of tavernas and shops in walking distance too.

The perfect honeymoon

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I have been coming to Villa Theos for 4 years, and hopefully many more. It is always as described and well cared for. It is always clean and well maintained both by Debbie (who does the villa) and Kieth (who does the pool). The private pool was perfect for those days where we had a heatwave and the aircon was just as good! Most nights we would end up outside enjoying the views as there is loads of space just to relax.

It's very close to a few supermarkets, bakery, restaurants that life is nice and easy while you are out there. Easy driving to some amazing beaches and the Capital, Argostolli, where we went most mornings to have coffee and see the turtles. We have returned every year. This is where we became engaged, and even had our honeymoon. We will always recommend this Villa.

There is not much I can add ontop of the other reviews apart from I have found that if you have any questions or need any recommendations on where to go or what to do, James and Amanda are always extremely helpful!

A wonderful peaceful relaxing retreat

  • 5 of 5

Fab villa and pool both kept Imaculate, everything you would need for your stay. If you want peace and quiet villa Theos is a perfect location, the only sound you will hear are the goats passing outside Theos with the charming tinkling of the bells they have around their necks, typical village life. The small village itself has a well stocked mini market a Fab to die for cake shop and three restaurants all dishing up in our opinion a good choice. Our highlight of the stay was booking Viva, a personal chef. You can book her online, it was the best top restaurant style food we have ever eaten and you don't have to do a thing. Viva even cleans and puts everything away. We tried to book her the second week but she was fully booked catering to all villas. If you want special reasonably priced pampering book Viva. We have already made a booking for Theos next year and hopefully get Viva your personal chef for a special holiday villa treat

Owner's Response: Thank you for your wonderful review - we need to try Viva, she sounds great. We are so pleased you enjoyed the villa and the village of Lakithra and look forward to welcoming you again next year, and the sound of the goats as they were in the field behind the villa when we first viewed are part what sold it to us!

Amazing Villa great location

  • 5 of 5

What a beautiful Villa, we arrived late at night after a 10 minute transfer via taxi to arrive at Villa Theos and it was magical. The villa was clean tidy and extremely well equipped, the pool was cleaned very regularly as was the villa. Lakithra is an ideal base to explore the island and very handy for the airport. We particularly enjoyed the hospitality from The Intenational taverna in Laithra and returned there on our last night. We had excellent contact with James and Amanda prior to our visit and therefore had a very straightforward arrival. We highly recommend Penfanis car hire who delivered our car to the villa. Our favourite beach was Avithos, Myrtos beach is a must see, Argostoli for evening meal, ferry to Lixouri, yellow boat hire from village of Agia Effimia was our favourite day out. We will certainly be returning and would most definitely recommend beautiful Villa Theos, Thank You James & Amanda.

Fabulous villa!

  • 5 of 5

Exactly as described on the web site. Fabulous villa and pool. Obviously cared for and loved. Air con really efficient and sooo welcome as we had a heatwave. Plenty of seating areas outside. Clean pool and Keith the pool man a great help for directions to good beaches! We have stayed in many villas and this has to be one of the best. Easy drive to beaches, supermarkets and Argostoli. The local baker and tavernas so friendly and homely. The village supermarket deliver if you take up your order - all free and with a smile! Would have no hesitation in recommending the villa and Amanda the owner very helpful.
